4.3 Priority Sequencing Rules
Priority Rules provide guidelines for the sequence in which jobs should be worked. In using this rules, job processing times and due dates are important pieces of information. Priority Rules try to minimize completion time, number of jobs in the system, and job lateness, while maximizing facility utilization.

4.3 Priority Sequencing Rules
4 types First come, first served (FCFS) Shortest processing time (SPT) Earlier due date (EDD) Critical Ratio (CR)

4.3 Priority Sequencing Rules
First come, first served (FCFS) Jobs are processed in the order in which they arrive at a machine or work center. Shortest processing time (SPT) Jobs are processed according to processing time at a machine or work center, shortest job first. Earlier due date (EDD) Jobs are processed according t due date, earlier due date first. Critical Ratio (CR) Jobs are processed according to smallest ratio of time remaining until due date to processing time remaining.

4.3.1 Sequencing Rules: First Come, First Served (FCFS) Example 1
Five jobs are to be done at custom furniture shop: Do all the jobs get done on time? No, Jobs B, C, D and E are going to be late Job Days to Finish Date Promised A 2 5 B 8 C 6 12 D 4 10 E 1 SOLUTION: Measure of effectiveness: Sequence Work Time Flow Time Due Date Lateness A 2 5 B 8 10 C 6 16 12 4 D 20 E 1 21 17 TOTALS 69 33 Note! Flow time: is the amount of time a job spent in shop/factory Total work time/makespan: is the time needed to process given set of jobs Lateness: different between completion time and due date (if (–ve) put it zero)

4.3.1 Sequencing Rules: First Come, First Served (FCFS) Example 1
Performance measuring formula: #Average completion time = Total flow time ÷ No. of jobs #Average number of jobs = Total flow time ÷ Total job work time In the system #Average job lateness = Total late days ÷ No. of jobs #Utilization = Total job work time÷ Total flow time = in %

4.3.1 Sequencing Rules: First Come, First Served (FCFS) Example 2
SOLUTION:

4.3.2 Sequencing Rules: Shortest Processing Time (SPT)
Shortest Processing Time. Jobs with the shortest processing time are scheduled first. Jobs are sequenced in increasing order of their processing time. Shortest processing time is optimal for minimizing: Average and total flow time Average waiting time Average and total lateness

4.3.2 Sequencing Rules: Shortest Processing Time (SPT)
The steps for using this rule are : Firstly, the user will input the number of jobs, the job names, the processing time and the due date of each job or use the data values given at the starting point. The second step is sorting out the shortest processing time among the jobs. Thirdly, calculate the flow time of each job by using the processing time. The flow time is the accumulation of processing time each job by each job.

4.3.2 Sequencing Rules: Shortest Processing Time (SPT) Example 1
Suppose we have the four jobs to the right arrive for processing on one machine 11

4.3.2 Sequencing Rules: Shortest Processing Time (SPT) Example 1
Answer: Shortest Operating Time Schedule Sequence Work Time Flow Time Due Date Lateness D 1 4 C 3 6 A 8 5 B 7 15 10 TOTAL 28 Jobs A and B are going to be late Average completion time 28/4 = 7 days Average number of jobs in the system 28/15 = jobs Average lateness 8/4 = 2days Utilization 15/28 = 53.57%

4.3.2 Sequencing Rules: Shortest Processing Time (SPT) Example 2
A Brake Pad have 5 process that will undergo before it will be produce at a particular point in time . The jobs are labeled A, B, C, D, and E in the order that they entered the shop. The respective processing times and due dates are given in the table below. Determine the schedule by using the SPT rule. Job sequence Processing Time Due Date A(turning) B(drilling) C(grinding) D(milling) E( facing) 6 2 8 3 9 18 15 23

4.3.2 Sequencing Rules: Shortest Processing Time (SPT) Example 2
Solution:

4.3.2 Sequencing Rules: Shortest Processing Time (SPT) Example 2
#Average completion time = Total flow time ÷ No. of jobs #Average number of jobs = Total flow time ÷ Total job work time In the system #Average job lateness = Total late days ÷ No. of jobs #Utilization = Total job work time÷ Total flow time = in % Average completion time 65/5 = 13 days Average number of jobs in the system 65/28 = jobs Average lateness 9/5 = 1.8 days Utilization /65 = 43.08%

4.3.3 Sequencing Rules: Earliest Due Date (EDD)
Jobs are sequenced in increasing order of their due dates; The job with earliest due date is first, the one with the next earliest due date is second, and so on; A priority sequencing rule that specifies that the job with the earliest due date is the next job to be processed

4.3.3 Sequencing Rules: Earliest Due Date (EDD)
The steps for using this rule are : Firstly, the user will input the number of jobs, the job names, the processing time and the due date of each job or use the data values given at the starting point. The second step is sorting out the earliest due date among the jobs. Thirdly, calculate the flow time of each job by using the processing time. The flow time is the accumulation of processing time each job by each job.

4.3.3 Sequencing Rules: Earliest Due Date (EDD)
The formulas for calculation are below: #Average completion time = Total flow time ÷ No. of jobs #Average number of jobs = Total flow time ÷ Total job work time In the system #Average job lateness = Total late days ÷ No. of jobs #Utilization = Total job work time÷ Total flow time = in %

Processing Time (Days)
4.3.3 Sequencing Rules: Earliest Due Date (EDD) Example 1 Five engine blocks are waiting for processing. The processing times have been estimated. Expected completion times have been agreed. The table shows the processing time and due date of those 5 engines. Determine the schedule by using the EDD rule. Engine Block Processing Time (Days) Due Date (Days) Ranger 8 10 Explorer 6 12 Bronco 15 20 Econoline 150 3 18 Thunderbird 22

4.3.3 Sequencing Rules: Earliest Due Date (EDD) Example 1
Engine (1) (2) (3) (2)-(3) Block Processing Completion Due Days Tardy Sequence Time Time Date (0 if negative) Ranger Explorer Econoline Bronco Thunderbird 8 0 32 12 14 2 17 0 44 22 Total Average completion time 85/5 = 17 days Average number of jobs in the system 85/44 = jobs Average tardiness 36/5 = 7.2 days Utilization /85 = 51.76%

4.3.4 Sequencing Rules: Critical Ratio (CR)
Is an index number computed by dividing the time remaining until due date by the work time remaining. The critical ratio gives priority to jobs that must be done to keep shipping on schedule. The critical ratio is measure of urgency of any order compared to the other orders for the same facility. The ratio is based on when the completed order is required and how much time is required to complete.

4.3.4 Sequencing Rules: Critical Ratio (CR)
The step for using this rule are: At the starting program, user input the numbers of job, the jobs name, the works day remaining and the due date of each job and as well the today's date. The today's date and the number of job are just inputted once time. Then, the others are followed the value of the number of jobs inputted. After that, compute the critical ratio by using the formula. The formula for Critical Ratio is: CR = time remaining / works day remaining After calculating the CR for each job, give the priority order by using the value of the calculated critical ratio. The priority order is performed from smaller to larger.

4.3.4 Sequencing Rules: Critical Ratio (CR)
There are 3 characteristics can be seen from the critical ratio: A job with low critical ratio(less than 1.0) ---- falling behind schedule. If  CR is exactly the job is on schedule. If CR is greater than the job is ahead of schedule and has some slack.

4.3.4 Sequencing Rules: Critical Ratio (CR)
The critical ratio help in most production scheduling system as below: Determine the status of specific job. Establish relative priority among jobs on a common basis. Relate both stock and make-to-order jobs on a common basis. Adjust priorities (and revise schedules) automatically for changes in both demand and job progress. Dynamically track job progress and location.

4.3.4 Sequencing Rules: Critical Ratio (CR) Example 1
A machine center in a job shop for a local fabrication company has five unprocessed jobs remaining at a particular point in time. The jobs are labeled 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 in the order that they entered the shop. The respective processing times and due dates are given in the table below. Sequence the 5 jobs by CR rules. Job number Processing Time Due Date 1 2 3 4 5 11 29 31 61 45 33 32

4.3.4 Sequencing Rules: Critical Ratio (CR) Example 1
Current time: t=0 Job number Processing Time Due Date Critical Ratio 1 2 3 4 5 11 29 31 61 45 33 32 61/11(5.545) 45/29(1.552) 31/31(1.000) 33/1 (33.00) 32/2 (16.00) Current time should be reset after scheduling one job Current time: t=31 Job number Processing Time Due Date-Current Time Critical Ratio 1 2 4 5 11 29 30 14 30/11(2.727) 14/29(0.483) 2/1 (2.000) 1/2 (0.500)
